I loved this one. Oh so smooth and creamy! I didn't have instant espresso coffee powder so I used instant coffee granules. I had some mascarpone cheese left over from another recipe so I replaced 1/2 cup of the cream with 1/2 cup of the mascarpone. I also added 1 T. of kahlua to the vanilla/coffee mixture.
